That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

However, Olaplex Holdings's P/E ratio is best considered in relation to those of others within the specialty retail industry or those of similar companies.
